Just tried using the Modern (Windows 10) Icon set and seeing a few missing icons in both PowerArchiver Burner and PowerArchiver Encryption screens . They are all there in the Minimalistik icon set and the only difference I can see is the former is blue and the latter grey. In version 22.00.9
there were some security issues fixed in 7zip:
As it seems, that PowerArchiver and PACL use the 7zip libraries, could you please update them to the latest version?
I noticed that the version of ZPAQ used is older than the latest released 7.15 https://mattmahoney.net/dc/zpaq.html also there seems to be a newer fork that adds several features https://github.com/fcorbelli/zpaqfranz
It would be useful to implement this latest version (it also maintains the same syntax and behavior as the latest official release if used the -715 flag) and add when opening a zpaq file a choice of the version of the files to show (e.g. as dummy folders represented the various versions present). Since any previous changes are stored with this format, it is possible to extract a snapshot of a certain date/version.
If I open a password-protected zipper file (created with WinRAR but I think that’s irrelevant), open it with PowerArchiver and run “Remove Encryption” on the same file, then reopen it and add a password with “Encrypt Archive,” the resulting archive will be protected with the old ZipCrypto algorithm and not AES as indicated.
(this can be verified, for example, by trying to open the archive files with Windows Explorer, which does not support the AES algorithm)
PA 21.00.18 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
I made a big .PA file and thought I’d check it was made correctly with Menu / Actions / Test.
a) PA always issues a UAC prompt to do this!
b) PA always says there are many errors in PA files.
PGP Encryption - Access violation error
I just downloaded and installed PowerArchiver 2013 on my W7 box and tried to use the “Encrypt” context menu option to encrypt a test file with OpenPGP. On the initial Encrypt Files screen I have tried various choices. After clicking Encrypt, I get to a screen that wants a public encryption key which I have installed. I “Add” the key and click “Next”. Every time I get a popup error “Access violation at address 00DABD87 in module ‘paes.exe’. Write of address 00000015.” I tried with a key that works elsewhere and with a new key, same results. I tested on a second W7 machine, same results. Any thoughts?
Please go to PowerArchiver, click on Encrypt button in the middle of the toolbar. You will get Encrypt Tool with OpenPGP as an option. Check if it works there? That way we can pinpoint the issue more clearly.
I did as you asked. On the Encrypt Files dialog I added a single text file, selected OpenPGP, and Encrypt Individually. Everything else left at the default. I have three PGP encryption keys installed on this W7 machine so I selected one, added it and clicked “Next”. Same error. I tried the same thing with the other two keys, same result.
I then used another product “Kleopatra” to encrypt the same file with all three keys and succeeded. Just to confirm the keys are OK.
I’m actually doing this on behalf of one of our vendors that already owns PowerArchiver. If we’re successful, the vendor’s folks won’t have to learn a new product and I can use one of my existing scripts as a template to automate receiving and decrypting their files. (We have about 100 such automated PGP processes running already.)
Thanks for your assistance.
Can you email us at support at conexware dot com so we can get some better info… it might be different type of openpgp key than ones that we test with, there are quite few different possibilities. Thanks!
